Nigerian heavyweight boxer Efe Ajagba to face Jonnie Rice on September 19

Nigerian heavyweight boxer Efe Ajagba will make his Top Rank on ESPN debut Saturday, Sept. 19 against veteran Jonnie Rice.

The 10-rounder bout will also co-feature the Jose Pedraza vs Javier Molina junior welterweight fight as the main event from the MGM Grand Las Vegas.

Ahead of Ajagba’s debut, Top Rank chairman Bob Arum said: “I am delighted that Efe Ajagba will make his Top Rank debut as he continues his march to the top of the heavyweight division.

“Kasir Goldston and Jahi Tucker are two major talents, and we are excited to see their professional journeys begin here in Las Vegas.”

Ajagba (13-0, 11 KOs) returns to the ring after suring the services of new promoter and manager, James Prince, and head trainer, Kay Koroma.

To all my fans, the wait is finally over. I am ready to get back in the ring and do what I do best,” Ajagba said. “I haven’t fought since March 7, and I’ve been looking for someone to devour. On September 19, I finally get to do it. Tune in to ESPN+. You don’t want to miss it.”

Now living in Houston, Ajagba last fought in March, knocking out former world title challenger Razvan Cojanu in nine rounds.
